New this year, Busy Beaver Lawn & Garden, will be taking over the Convention Center Lobby to create a space with a “farmer’s market country vibe” showcasing professional landscape elements that can be incorporated into your own backyard. First, tour through two gardens each with a different theme. The first, a park theme with layering colors and heights while the second pulls from Japanese Style Gardens showcasing simple design ideas that make a big impact.

After the gardens, shop the new Country Market to celebrate Busy Beaver’s recent retail expansion. Finally, rest your feet in the tranquil Café and find your spring inspiration. If you have questions about your garden or the new Country Market, be sure to stop by the Busy Beaver Information desk – bring photos, floor plans and questions for complimentary advice from the experts!
